Retailers are diving into the summer season. Will you be joining them?
It’s been a gloomy weekend, but the ads and inserts today should have you thinking sunny thoughts. Retailers are jumping into summer, and they’re tempting you to do the same with some great sales.
We’ve got more coupons this week than we’ve had since the weekend before Easter (that awesome 4-insert Sunday, remember?).
Both SmartSource and Redplum have booklets with a wide variety of products. A few standouts include coupons for Johnson & Johnson first aid products and a free first aid kit offer, Aveeno sun protection products and a BOGO Gillette coupon in Redplum. SmartSource has great coupons for Red Lobster, Hidden Valley, “People” magazine, Huggies, Oscar Mayer, Hershey’s/Honey Maid/Jet-Puffed (don’t forget about the printable coupon from earlier this week! you should be able to use both here) and Logan’s Roadhouse.
Kroger starts its frozen food sale this week, offering tons of frozen items for a fraction of the normal cost. Cool Whip, Green Giant veggies, Lean Cuisine and Stouffer’s products, Tyson chicken, Popsicle items and so many other products are on sale. You can save even more by buying any 10 participating items and get an additional $5 off! Stock up now, as some of these products rarely go on sale.
Other fresh products are also on sale, like eggs, Yoplait yogurt, sweet corn and 1% or skim milk.
Target has various outdoors goodies on sale (watering cans, lawn chairs, flower pots, etc.) for $20 or less, but the biggest deals can be found on sandals and swimsuits. Sandals for the whole family are on sale for $18 or under, and swim suits for women and girls are only $14 per piece.
I know it seems early, but you might consider doing some Christmas shopping this week at Toys R Us. Tons of items are on sale, but by utilizing their layaway program you can really stock up. Pricey products like the Nintendo Wii, Wii games, Little Tikes, Fisher-Price and select XBOX 360 games are all on sale. One of the best deals is a free movie ticket to “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” with the purchase of any Priates of the Carribean product $25 or more.
Look out for the diaper and formula coupons on the back, too!
A.C. Moore and Michaels are battling for the best bargains this week. While I think Michaels wins, A.C. Moore has some good prices on wall decor, seasonal flags, silk flowers, frames and scrapbooking materials.
Michaels takes the cake with its buy one, get one for a penny sale, though. Framing can be expensive, even when you’re doing it yourself, but tons of their frame selection falls under this sale. Other products that apply are artist pads and canvas and garden pots.
Walgreens will continue to have vitamins buy one, get one free this week, as well as laundry products, Kleenex and more. Neutrogena sun care will all be buy one, get one half off (you can find a $2 coupon here, too!), while Aveeno sun care is $2 off (don’t forget to use your coupon, too!). L’Oreal, Revlon, Covergirl and Maybelline products are also available for buy one, get one half off, so now is a good time to stock up and combine these deals with coupons.
CVS usually has nice sales on makeup, but this week is especially good. L’Oreal products are already on sale, but you could also earn some ExtraBucks by buying them. Covergirl, Neutrogena, Revlon and Physicians Formula are also on sale. There’s no reward for ExtraBucks with these items, but if you’re a member of the Beauty Club the purchase of these products will go toward your credit of $5 in ExtraBucks with every $50 beauty purchase.
One of my favorite deals this week is the$10 in ExtraBucks that will be given by purchasing two Neutrogena sun care or sunless tanning products. Combine that deal with the printable coupons you can find here, and you’ll get a great price on some otherwise expensive products.
Dick’s Sporting Goods has a special ad for golf lovers. An assortment of clubs in all price ranges are on sale, as well as shoes and apparel. Select golf balls are buy two, get one free. If your dad is a golf lover, it may be a good opportunity to do some early Father’s Day shopping.
